Secular Morality and the Is-Ought Problem

My position had been that we can be good without God, and that science and reason are all we need to chart morality. Today I no longer hold that position.

The Ethics of Secularism

"Whether there be other good or not, the good of the present life is good, and it is good to seek that good...Individual good attained by methods conducive to the good of others, is the highest aim of man, whether regard be had to human welfare in this life or personal fitness for another. Precedence is therefore given to the duties of this life."
